Hi I needed some advice, on trying to decipher why all of the sudden dd 13 mos got the biggest rash of her life, It started inside her labia as red in the day i took so much care and changed often pretty often and did 3 changes at night when i always let her 10 to 12 hrs at nights, but it only got worse and spread by the next morning it started from her inner labia and ran all the way down and all the way to the end of her butt line and it had a crusty feel, i thought they were puss or something but after all day today i think its just her puffed bubbled irritated skin and its very red almos brown, and the bubbly skin is a little gray. iwe went out to get some sun on her rash and be nappy free for a while, but it just stayed like that through out the day and we'll see tomorrow.
I blamed the yeast and im already treating it as if it was a fungal and fixing our diets without sugar but do you think it could be candida, specially since weve been pretty healthy, I try not to give her sugar, except for some cherios and fruits and yes carbs not procesed but some wheat crackers, wheat cookies sometimes, but no juices or candy or stuff like that.
And we never do antibiotics, yes we had a mild thrush case at 4 weeks but cleared in less than 2 weeks. and since then she hardly ever gets rashes specially these harsh ones.
I do many remedies like GSE and BS to clean her between changes and then i dry her well and put some ccoconut oil with some tea tree, or some organic cream of zinc oxide or aloe , but im not sure if theyre helping yet probably will clear it up soon...
What is your guess it could be from ???
oh yes i still breastfeed and always have
